The river is rising pretty fast this morning. It is now at 0.6m at Ballylahan bridge. Judging by further upstream it will continue to rise. This will have an adverse effect on fishing by mid day . Today would be a good day to try one of the spate rivers like the Easkey or Owenmore. Lough Conn is also an alternative.

The river is very slightly up on yesterday, from 0.7m to 0.75m at Ballylahan bridge. This is nothing substantial and should not cause problems for angling. We had one confirmed report of a Local angler taking 3 salmon on fly from east Mayo Anglers waters yesterday.
